Very interesting occurence I thought I'd share, discovered while I was looking to tame one of these; if two opposing pets have an underground avoid and use it at the same time (ie, the Water Snake's "Burrow"...and the Shimmershell's "Dive"), the combat round will continue as if nothing happened!
My snake burrowed, the snail dove, and the snake moved in for a normal attack! Could come in handy...and it makes me wonder if the airborne versions are the same!
Best breed of H and P:
(Let's be honest, no one gives a f*** about a snail's S)
•Alongside Scooter, this snail has the best of both snail worlds that really matter. Even when it comes to P, a snail will not be a big hitter. It's all about their H, and at 1969, its among the top 10 of most healthful pets. Coupled with Shell Shield and Dive, its longevity during battled is significantly increased.
@ Gawd: Only the H/H breed has that much health, and based on the info you gave, you have the H/P variant.
Fortunately, you're probably better off with that anyway. H/P has less health, but its Absorb will heal for more, its Shell Shield will stop more damage, and, of course, it'll hit harder overall.
Having the H/P breed probably makes this guy better than the Rapana Whelk, albeit requiring more of a time investment.
Got a level 6 rare on first try at 36.4, 35.5 :)
Only snail with a P breed of any kind, and its HP to be exact. This will be good against the whispering spirit.
Caught a level 4 rare by itself at 38.08, 48.48
H/H does exist. JUst got it "rare" quality after several days of trying directly with snails and as a secondary to Darkshore Cub. Have failth.
At lvl 25 my rare blue is only 1790...Not the 1900. Any ideas how they get that high?
After a few battles, I found a rare as a secondary to another shimmershell snail. It was a level 6, so looks like that is the lucky number. I found it along the shore next to Remtravel's Excavation site. =D
At level 10, my shimmershell snail matches up with the 6,16 breed. I'll update once I get it to level 25 to see if it has 1969 health.
Has anyone here got the max health (6,16) breed?
I found mine at the uppermost northern part of Mists Edge on the shore. The first one a level 3 rare. I was so happy never had that happen to me. I normally have to spend a good part of the day doing pet battles to find a rare. I saw several along the coast dont know if it was the time of day. It was on a Sunday 4:50 Central Time.
Breed 7 (H/P) of this one is the best snail you can get in game, and as snails in general are extremely useful, you want to have it :)
Thank you to Devlan on the advice to battle the Darkshore Cubs for the chance to get a rare as a secondary. I had flown the entire shore and only seen a few snails and neither of them were any good. After only challenging 3 bears, one of them brought his rare snail friend along!
A good way to find these little buggers is to battle level 5+ Darkshore Cubs. The Snails are often included as secondaries in these battles.
I found a dozen or so, scattered along the sandy strip along the coast, from end to end of Darkshore. No rare yet, but I'll be back - I want a trio of snails.
first one was a rare, guess i am lucky sometimes. check on the shore south
found one at 36,83
Fly up and down the coast, finally found one! Didn't find a whole lot of them, good luck!
